Switch from 5.0 to 8.4A uConnect

Just curious if any has tried to switch from 5.0 to 8.4A screen. I know it would require switching Screen and panel with A/C controls around it BUT how about anything else? Computer or and other electronics?
Thanks

I don't believe this can be done.

Re: Switch from 5.0 to 8.4A uConnect

They might say that because there are no NAV components in RA2 and that is why it can not to changed. I guess people would install RA3 and want NAV turned on. All I'm looking for is to put in RA3 screen (no nav function) and curious if it will work. It obviously can be done, question is, which components need to be replaced. If I rewire the whole car, I can even get the NAV option put in (but that is too much). Is it just a screen or the computer as well... if so which ones?

Re: Switch from 5.0 to 8.4A uConnect

Milous made it very clear before we could even place an order, to choose your radio carefully because none of the 2014 Jeep radios are interchangeable.

Go to WK2JEEPS.com and read the 2014 radio section.
